Servant of the Underworld (2010)
3.78 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This was a refreshing change of pace- a murder mystery set in the ancient Aztec world, with a lot of magic and old gods creating strife. The lead character (the High Priest of the Dead - thus Servant of the Underworld) is quite likeable, and the story line interesting. The only...
D'obsidienne Et De Sang (2011)
3.78 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I'm glad that I found this series; it's not something I would have thought to try except for goodreads. It's pretty much a straight forward murder mystery dressed up with Aztec myth, but the world is well drawn and learning more about the Aztec pantheon was fascinating. de Bodard...
On a Red Station, Drifting (2012)

review 1: I picked this novella up a year ago, but failed to finish it until now. I am glad that I took the time to get to the end. De Bodard, a computer engineer in addition to being an author, mixes southeast Asian traditional cultural values with space opera. This book plays with the th...
Harbinger of the Storm (2011)

review 1: This is second in a series, and if you liked the first one you will probably enjoy this as well. I've rated it a little lower than the first one, primarily because I found a couple of the plot points not as tightly woven. It may also be a little bit of spite on my part for a part...
The Waiting Stars (2000)

review 1: I don't generally like to be able to see where the ending is going when there's still a good fifth of the story left, and that was the case with this. It began a little more hard-SF than I usually read (I'm reading it as a Hugo nomination, like several other reviewers here), but ...
Immersion (2012)
3.92 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: A lot of things are stuffed into this short story. Imperialism, whether economic, cultural, or in the recent past nakedly military. Class and money. Identity, and how it ties into the imperialism. The use and abuse of technology. Common themes, but handled deftly, and with a genu...
En una estación roja, a la deriva (2014)
3.78 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Space empire with Vietnamese culture is riven by revolt, and a refugee civil servant arrives on a remote space station hoping for sanctuary. Her welcome is a cold one, not only because of personal incompatibility with with station's human supervisor, but because the station's AI ...
